Watch Dogs 3 is definitely coming, that much is very, very clear from the considerable success of the first two games in the franchise, but we've known practically nothing about the mythical third title up until now.
According to the latest information, however, we won't be playing Watch Dogs 3 anytime soon, as the game may be planned as a dedicated next-gen release, targeting the likes of PS5 and Xbox Next, or whatever other naming conventions Sony and Microsoft decide to go for.
Watch Dogs 3 trademark specifications have recently come to light thanks to SkullziTV, a Youtuber who sniffed out the fact that Ubisoft's latest iteration of the Watch Dogs trademark has no direct relation to their previous one, which - as one must note - hosted both of the previous titles.
In practice, this may well mean nothing, but it also suggests that Watch Dogs 3 is being developed with next-gen consoles in mind since it's an entirely new IP filing. We don't know where the next Watch Dogs release will go, but Ubisoft does seem to be learning its lessons as the franchise moves along - in most aspects at least.
Would you prefer a darker, grittier Watch Dogs 3 such as what we've seen in the first game's rendition of a high-tech Chicago, or is the more colourful, edgier aesthetic of Watch Dogs 2's San Francisco more your speed? Obviously, we can hope for Ubisoft to take the best aspects of both and combine them into something truly great, but that's no easy feat.
